ARE YOU A GOOD  CANDIDATE?

Pre-existing skin conditions and skin treatments can heavily compromise the effectiveness of microblading and/or powder shading. So before you book your appointment, read the following information below to find out if microblading is right for you. If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate, we are happy to provide a free consultation.

 

SKIN CONDITIONS (FACE ONLY)

  • Skin Complications: If you have skin which is prone to complications including eczema, psoriasis, and dematitis (i.e. your skin is constantly flaking, itching, or aggravated), your skin is not suitable for microblading and/or powder shading beacause your skin will not hold the pigment well.

  • Chronic Conditions: If you have conditions like acne or rosacea, the inherent nature of your type of skin may cause excessive bleeding, which means that your skin will not retain pigment well. 

  • Oily Skin: Excessively oily skin can cause the microbladed hair strokes to blur together. A suitable alternative would be powder shading.

  • Sunburn: If you have received a dark tan or a sunburn, you must wait until your skin has resumed its natural color. *Please be mindful of our appointment/deposit policies regarding sunburns.

  • Previous Semi-Permanent Makeup: If you have previously had permanent makeup done at another studio that you want to change or have touched up, please email us photos of the area prior to setting up a consultation. Unfortunately, reworking the area is not always an option, so please do not leave a deposit or schedule an appointment until you hear back from us.​​

MEDICATIONS

  • Accutane:  Individuals must be off of Accutane for at least one year prior to the procedure.

  • Eyebrow Growth Serum or Eyebrow Transplants:  You must stop 6 months prior to the procedure.

  • Latisse (eyeliner only):  Latisse can cause excessive bleeding that can lead to a poor result. You must stop use 3-6 months prior to the procedure.

  • Cancer or Autoimmune Disease:  You must be 6 months to 1 year off chemotherapy to insure proper healing. Please discuss your desire to  have permanent makeup with your doctor to ensure your safety.

OTHER CONDITIONS

  • If you are pregnant, nursing, have hemophilia, heart condition or complications with diabetes, you are not a good candidate for microblading or permanent makeup.
